I did a fresh install of W11 on a new WD SSD for an all in one that only has one set of cables for the drive. The drive I removed with W10 on it is a Samsung. I have a USB cable and can see the drive in explorer.

I want to sell off the old drive after I wipe it clean but it appears that neither the WD or Samsung software will not do either as its on a cable.

Any thoughts on a software that will allow me to wipe the Samsung drive while its on the cable ? Thanks in advance

The manufacturer of the SSD may offer a secure erase utility for the SSD.

Try Samsung Magician, but the USB interface may interfere with it.
